A man had an apparent heartattack at Mojave which is home to the Mojave Mile event. He hit about 210 mph, then the vehicle passed the 'slow down' zone at 201mph and the car flipped 30 feet into the air.

RIP to the guy. To be honest that would be the way I would want to go out, in a supercar doing insane speeds. The other way would be banging a supermodel.

Another member added that Jack had modified his vehicle with a Whipple supercharger so that he could hit 200 MPH this year, which he apparently did moments before passing away.

That is one of the strangest stories I've heard, but at least he did reach his goal and went out like a true Viking.

If he were getting a blow job from a hot woman in the passenger seat at the same time, I'd say it was the ideal way to go out.
